My name is Kerry Ruppert.  I have been at Gayhead for 26 years teaching Special Education in the ICT Classrooms.  I am duel certified in Elementary and Special Education.  Teaching has been the most rewarding career and a job that I love.  I have taught ICT 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 6th.  I have taken on the challenge of each grade level.  I have loved each one as they really are so different from each other.  My goal is to create a caring, warm, and nurturing environment. 
    My husband Pat and I have 3 children.  Christina is in college to become a sonogram tech, Joseph is a first-year student at Brockport College studying to be PE Teacher, and Mikey is in the  7th grade at Union Vale Middle School.  My family loves baseball, hiking, going to the beach, and gardening. We are NY Yankee Fans and divided between the Patriots  - Giants for football.  
    I have loved my career since the first day I started and still love it today.  There is not greater joy seeing a student thrive, grow, and learn.  I look forward to a wonderful year and "Welcome You to My Family".  
    Please reach out if you have any questions or would like to say "HI"  Remember, I am here for your children.  Please contact me with any questions, concerns, or notes.  My goal is to make school a fun, safe, &  educational environment.  (kerry.ruppert@wcsdny.org)
